    Hey I have been talking to a local dealer whe has a Hustler Hydro 37" walk behind. The model is a 2005, and is list priced at $5200, he has offered me $3800 on the mower, I was wondering what you all thought about this. It is brand new and has a floating deck, seems like a steal to me. I was also wondering if anyone could tell me some of the pros and cons of running a hydro with dual pumps as opposed to the Trimstar walk behind which is a hydro without the hassle of hoses and a hydraulic resevoir? Is this even much of a hassle or is it just a selling point for the new hydros with IZT transmissions? Any info would be much appreciated.-Aaron

    Sounds like you are getting a great deal on that mower.
    Some of the reason's to look at the TrimStar...
    Less expensive (usually, but maybe not in your case.)
    Second generation of the H-Bar steering (cruise control built in)
    Fuel tank with sight gage.
    Newer design series of deck.
    Weighs less.
    Newer series of Kawasaki engine.
    Higher blade tip speed.

    The advantage of using the EZT's...
    Sealed units, minimal maintenance.
    Less components, no hoses, fittings etc...etc....
    Parking brakes are built into them.
    Gets the cost of the machine down.

    Hope this helps.
